Non so che darei (translation: I don't know what to give) was the Italian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1980 in the Hague performed by Alan Sorrenti.

The song deals with Sorrenti's feelings for his lover. He tells her that he does not know what he would do if he were to lose her and also that he does not know what he would give to stop time and be able to spend the night with her.

It was performed sixth on the night following Morocco and preceding Denmark. At the close of voting, it finished in 6th place with 87 points. Despite this, it became one of the best-selling songs of its year.

Lyrics

Se ti perdo, non so che farei
Ricorderò sempre ogni piccolo istante vissuto con te
Le mie mani sono vuote ma
Io non nascondo l’amore che sento da sempre per te
In fondo all’anima, non so perché
Io vorrei stringerti ancora una volta a me

Non so che darei per fermare il tempo
Per dormire al tuo fianco solo una notte
Non so che darei per sentirti mia
Per tenerti vicina solo una notte

Poi le stelle e la luna spariranno e tu
Con le ali di cigno volerai laggiù

Le mie mani sono vuote ma
Io non nascondo l’amore che sento da sempre per te
In fondo all’anima, non so perché
Io vorrei stringerti ancora una volta a me

Non so che darei per fermare il tempo
Per dormire al tuo fianco solo una notte
Non so che darei per sentirti mia
Per tenerti vicina solo una notte

Non so che darei per fermare il tempo
Per dormire al tuo fianco solo una notte
Non so che darei per sentirti mia
Per tenerti vicina solo una notte

Non so che darei per fermare il tempo
Per dormire al tuo fianco solo una notte
Non so che darei per sentirti mia
Per tenerti vicina solo una notte

If I’d lose you, I don’t know what I’ll do
I’ll remember forever, every minute I lived with you
My hands are empty, but
I don’t hide the love that I’ll always feel for you
In the bottom of my heart I don’t know why
I would embrace you one more time

I don’t know what I can give to stop the time
To sleep beside you only for one night
I don’t know what I can give
To take you close to me only for one night

Then the stars and the moon and you
With the wings of a swan will fly down

My hands are empty, but
I don’t hide the love that I’ll always feel for you
In the bottom of my heart I don’t know why
I would embrace you one more time

I don’t know what I can give to stop the time
To sleep beside you only for one night
I don’t know what I can give
To take you close to me only for one night

I don’t know what I can give to stop the time
To sleep beside you only for one night
I don’t know what I can give
To take you close to me only for one night

I don’t know what I can give to stop the time
To sleep beside you only for one night
I don’t know what I can give
To take you close to me only for one night
